I've had problems setting up networking DURING the OS install. So first off, I would say just to choose WORKGROUP networking and no domain for the install. Once the system is up and running, you can join it to a domain.
If you don't have a IT guy running your network, then you don't have a domain and leaving it set to a workgroup named WORKGROUP is fine. Its just a way of grouping computers on the network. You can browse to any other workgroup without being a member of that workgroup.
